Frontier Extension District Master Gardeners


2021 MG

The Frontier Extension District is currently taking applications for the Master Gardner Training, which will take place this fall. If you aren’t sure if the Master Gardener Program is for you, ask yourself these questions. Do you enjoy working in the garden, flower bed or your lawn? Do you enjoy people, learning new things, and helping out in your community? If you answered yes to these questions the Master Gardner Program may be for you, but please note that the deadline to sign up this year is August 20th at 5pm. 

The application can be found HERE

Master Gardener Program Application

Master Gardeners are a vital part of K-State Research and Extension. Donating time in return for horticultural training, Master Gardeners help our county agents meet the need for horticultural information in their communities.

Who can become a Master Gardener?  Anyone with an interest in horticulture can apply for the Extension Master Gardener Program. If you want to improve your skills and knowledge and you like to work with people, the Extension Master Gardener Program may be for you.  You need to be available for about 40 to 50 hours of daytime training classes during your first year.  You must have at least a High School Diploma or the equivalent.  

Master Gardeners Volunteers are asked to give back 40 hours of service and education after completing the training.  Some of these projects may include assisting at the Garden Show, helping with county landscaping plantings, teaching youth about gardening or manning an Extension Horticulture Hotline.
